Pascal grew up surrounded by paintings by various artists like Chagall, Miro and Dali. As his parents owned an art gallery in Zurich, he understood from an early age the power of expressing things through images. At the art school in Vevey, Switzerland he realized that photography is an incredibly strong medium to discover, document and share what he likes most – humans and their various ways of living, creating and working. He believes that there is always a story to be told and follows his passion to uncover new and inspiring projects around the globe.
Having traveled the world for 5 years as a backpacker in the 1990’s, Justin recognized his passion for adventure. After working on charter boats in the Caribbean his travels guided him from the depths of the Amazon to the foot of Mt Everest. He has kayaked the northern Alaskan rivers and rode motorbikes across Mongolia in his constant quest for outdoor experiences.
With over 15 years as a professional photographer he has combined his profession with his love for adventure to push his storytelling in exciting new directions.
Beside his main occupation as a freelance photographer in the corporate world, Jean-Luc is pursuing visual storytelling ideas, self-exploration, creativeness and bring awareness to themes that would otherwise be outside his realm of everyday opportunities.
The spirit of travel and adventure plays an important role in Jean-Luc’s life. To live hand in hand with nature and to explore remote and wild places around the world has always been his passion since he was a little kid. But travel is also about the locals he meets along the way and the insights he gets into their culture. These encounters, he realized, often become one of the things he treasures the most about a journey.
Jean-Luc continues to explore all facets of photography, encouraging others to be curious about the new and the unknown.
Simone has seen first-hand how adventure can change your life, having quit her job in the film industry and set sail around the world as part of an amateur Yacht Race. Once back on dry-land, she moved close to the sea where she enjoys a wide variety of outdoor pursuits, including kayaking, cycling, sailing and swimming. Thirsty for a new challenge and keen to get back out on the water, Simone was part of a team of four who rowed non-stop around the UK, gaining a Guinness World Record for the first ever mixed team to do so.
Simone is a keen writer, podcast producer and host, and she is currently working on a memoir about the row. Having never been to Greenland she is excited to explore and connect with the land and people, and she’s thrilled she’s not the one taking the photos!
